This World Whisky Day, on Saturday 21st May, new craft whisky brand R&B Distillers are taking over at Kansas Smity's jazz and julep bar on Broadway market for an evening of whisky tastings, juleps and a dedicated whisky-only cocktail menu, inspired by jazz and blues artists who loved the golden nectar.
From 5.30-7pm R&B Brand ambassador Chris Hoban and Kansas Smitty's own Victoria Charlton will be leading a fun and interactive whisky and julep tasting. This will include a welcome cocktail and 2 whisky drams from R&B Distillers.
On arrival, guests will be given a refreshing Piney Brown Julep, featuring R&B Borders single grain whisky, lavender, pine, salted heather honey, bergamot, and lemon. Guests will then be invited to sample a dram of R&B's two whiskies – the rose tinted single malt While We Wait and the golden single grain Borders, before learning the tips and tricks behind the perfect julep from Kansas Smitty's talented bartenders.
Throughout the session participants will learn about the R&B handcrafting process, family heritage and future plans, as well as getting a taste of Kansas Smitty's delicious and experimental juleps, all in the setting of their intimate jazz and drinking den.
R&B's Whisky Takeover at Kansas Smittys is the perfect way to celebrate World Whisky Day, with drams, juleps, live music from The Saturday Night Special Band, and a whisky-only cocktail menu available all night long.
